Feast for the eyes at art show fest
works-in-glass over the June 2 weekend as the Artists Association of Clarence- Rockland (AACR) presented its third annual spring show. Something new for visiting patrons of fine arts was a back-room class-in-session gathering of some of the current students in the Saturday arts study program that AACR president, Bernard Lévesque, offers at his Studio Art Plus. “They were intimidated a bit,” said Lévesque, about his students’ initial reac- tion to the idea of sitting out in public to
work on their pieces and assignments. “But they really are budding artists. They’re all kids who really want to do art.” The young artists settled down soon enough at their easels with minds and eyes focused on what their hands were painting. They paused in their work just long enough to seek out Lévesque or one of the other older artists for advice on their technique or a critique of their work-in-progress before picking up their brushes again. This year’s AACR spring show featured the works of 29 local artists out of the current 50-plus membership in the group. The two-
day exhibition was also one of the most varied since the association began hosting its shows with both a wide variety of media and artistic subjects on display from tradi- tional oil and watercolour landscapes to fantastic graphic arts pen-and-ink illustra- tions and colourful stained-glass portraits. “People cannot believe the amount of tal- ent in the area,” Lévesque said, regarding feedback during the two-day exhibition. “These are all local artists. We don’t have to go to Ottawa for this kind of quality. It proves to me that there is room for art, and quality art, in this area.”
